Three youths were attacked in a campsite in Västra Hamnen, Malmö, on Monday night, according to a report in Sydsvenska Dagbladet.

The group, who were in Malmö as part of an equestrian competition, were asleep in their tents when they were attacked by a gang of ten or fifteen masked people.

It was said that one girl was stamped in the chest and a boy was hit over the back of the head. The youths, who were between 18 and 20 years old, were taken to hospital but have no major injuries.

When a campsite guard noticed the incident the gang started throwing stones at him as he drove his car towards the tent.
